    I worked at Education Management Corporation full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The internal team I worked on was great, most were not just coworkers but became friends. They really were passionate for what they did but there was so much realignment it was hard to stay focused worried if the next day you'd still have a job to come back to.

    Cons

    The ethical problems currently being investigated by the department of education. It was hard to be proud of the job you did when your company was on the news for fraud on a regular basis.
